This recipe is a revision for Cheater's Minestrone Soup that I posted some time back. I reworked it to make it WW friendly and was thrilled to see it was only 3 points. Using a food processor to rough chop the veggies (not zukes) makes this come together quickly. *NOTE: add points if you serve this over pasta and sprinkle with parmesan. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. In a soup pan, over medium heat warm the olive oil. Sauté onions until slightly translucent; add garlic and sauté an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Be careful not to burn the garlic.
  2. 4. Add carrots, celery, basil, broth, bean and bacon soup, water, tomatoes, cabbage, and zucchini.
  3. 5. NOTE: ADD POINTS for pasta and cheese if using.
  4. 6. In the mean time: boil water for pasta. Cook according to package directions.
  5. 7. DO NOT ADD pasta to the soup. Rinse cooked pasta with hot water to remove the starch residue and prevent sticking. Set aside.
  6. 8. Ladle hot soup over cooked macaroni; top with grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, if using.
